Collaborative cooking site launches

FoodistaFoodista , a new approach in online food blogging that launched a couple of days ago, brings a  new approach to recipe sharing.

The brainchild of a Seattle couple, Foodista is similar to Wikipedia in that anyone can contribute a recipe, — and anyone can edit one. On one hand, this means that adjustments can be made to imperfect submissions. But it also means that the potential exists that recipes could be altered to the point that they’re unrecognizable to the original author.

On conventional recipe blogs, readers have to scroll through submitted comments to glean tips from other cooks on how a dish might be improved. On Foodista, there are no comments, but there is a History tab so it’s possible to see what edits were made. I may submit a recipe just to see what happens to it....
